How to get the rustic glam look right

Rustic glam is a hot trend in home interior design. The look has been popular with weddings and parties for years, and now it is showing up in homes across the country. It’s perfect for people that like a touch of glamour while keeping a space livable and reviving older items to make them new again. Keep reading for tips on designing the perfect rustic-glam space in your home.

The elements of rustic glam

The key to rustic glam décor is getting the right mix of shine and sparkle paired with natural elements. You can add an even mix for balance, add more shine for wow-factor or tone it down for more neutral décor.

Shine and Sparkle

The glamour part of the décor can be subtle or standout. Shine and sparkle can come from paints, accent pieces, lighting, art, etc. Materials that catch the light like glass and Lucite are often just as effective as glittery metallics and crystals. For a sophisticated, subdued rustic glam look you can also opt for metal accents that gleam rather than sparkle.

Lighting is an element that should never be underestimated. It can have a dramatic impact on the tone and appearance of the space as well as adding a glittering effect whether it’s candlelight or electrical. Look for pieces that add functionality and enough wow-factor to make a statement.

Natural Pieces

Unfinished wood and antique furniture add a warm, lived-in feel to the rustic glam space. They are two standard features of rustic glam décor.

Leather is another material that lends itself well to rustic glam décor. Leather is often subtle, but has a rich texture that pairs nicely with metallic and sparkling accessories.

Wrought iron can be used in furniture and accessories for a rustic look that pairs well with other shiny metal objects.

Natural wood accent pieces like birch bark candleholders are also popular ways of mixing rustic with a glittering element.

A few ideas to try include:
  • Add an antler or branch chandelier that is draped with strings of crystals.
  • Use mirrors with ornate frames on stone walls.
  • String lights around a reclaimed wood headboard.
  • Keep the color palette fairly neutral so the shiny accents don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Use natural fabrics for furniture, lampshades, throws, etc. instead of synthetics.
  • Add a cowhide rug to the floor or hang it on the wall.
